Pandemic EBT ( P-EBT) is a federal program that provides extra food support for certain families with low income during the COVID-19 pandemic. Just like SNAP, using P-EBT will not impact your or your family’s immigration status.

P-EBT for students K-12
Congress created the P-EBT program for K-12 students eligible for free or reduced price school meals in Spring 2020 to help families buy food while schools are closed during COVID-19. Students who are learning remotely or in hybrid models are eligible. For information on P-EBT for K-12 students, see: map-ebt.org/k-12.
P-EBT for children 0-5 years old
Congress created P-EBT for children ages 0-5 in the fall of 2020. Unlike P-EBT for students in K-12, at least one member of the family must be enrolled in SNAP to get P-EBT for children under 6. For information on P-EBT for children ages 0-5 in SNAP households, see: map-ebt.org/0-5
